Reading this post, you need to realize an important fact:
the first 22 years of my life were spent in Washington.
I know my apples.
I love my apples.
And sometimes I acquire so many apples I look like a hoarder.
I had 15 pounds of apples in my house this morning. And that was after eating a few last night.
We foolishly picked up apples on our way home from church yesterday. That’s to blame for the fujis.
My parents were also coming. And said they’d bring some things from the garden. That’s to blame for the Criterions.
And then I told my mom to go through the Hood River fruit loop on their way down. Which resulted in the McIntoshes.
But like I said, if you’re a good Washingtonian you know your apples*
I love how apple pie looks
Brilliant part-I found a recipe where you make a caramel sauce, and dump it over the lattice. Gives you sugary goodness on top.
And since I had started chopping apples, applesauce was made too
A little under an hour later, and I have this beauty on my table
And a big bowl of apple sauce
Plus, my apple stash has shrunk
At least until next week when my cousin is bringing us goodies from apple pressing.
What’s your favorite apple type? I’m all about the fujis and the galas.
Have any favorite apple recipes?
*I have had many conversations about apples in my life. Fuji’s vs Braburns, why on earth anyone eats apples that have “delicious” in the name as those are always the worst, the pros and cons of a backyard apple trees. Not weird, right?
